Sarudin, Ahmad Al Mustafa (2017) The effect of continuous training vs interval training on resting heart rate and speed / Ahmad Al Mustafa Sarudin. [Student Project] (Unpublished)


Purpose of the present study was conducted in order to compare the effect of continuous training versus interval training on resting heart rate and speed among football player. 26 male subject were selected based on the inclusion criteria needed and were randomly assigned into two group, which are continuous training group and interval training group. Each group contain 13 subject completed 6 weeks training protocol running on the open field 3 days per week. Duration of each training session will be done in 30 minutes. Every two week the duration will be increase by 5 minutes. Continuous training group will running at 70-84% of heart rate reserve (HRR) within the time given. Interval training will be followed 70-84%/30-39% of HRR with I :2 min work/rest ratio. The result was no significant different of resting heart rate between continuous training and interval training, p-value= 0.46. Post speed test show there was significant difference between continuous training and interval training among football player with p-value= 0.03. It can conclude, that both continuous and interval training is beneficial in reducing resting heart rate. However, for speed, interval training is more convenient in maintain or improving speed compared to continuous training.
